In honor of the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s tragic and sudden death, we take time to remember him.

Here are 7 quotes from John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, that still continue to inspire us.

“We celebrate the past to awaken the future.”

“My call is not to those who believe they belong to the past. My call is to those who believe in the future.”

“We can have faith in the future only if we have faith in ourselves.”

“The human mind is our fundamental resource.”

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived and dishonest—but the myth—persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.”

“A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on. Ideas have endurance without death.”

May John F. Kennedy’s words and deeds live on in our memories.

Best,
